Data Modeling Inc. Selects Zerowait to Assist with Data Expansion
Purchases Off – Lease NetApp System to Expand Storage Infrastructure
Calgary, Alberta Canada (Vocus) October 5, 2010
Data Modeling , a leader in the seismic imaging industry, recently purchased an off – lease NetApp FAS3050 system with transferable licenses from Zerowait when it needed to expand its storage capacity. Kerry Stinson, President of DMI said: “Zerowait has done an excellent job of maintaining our current NetApp system while keeping expenses under control.” He continued, ‘When it came time to expand our storage due to increasing demand for our service, it made sense to see if they could save us even more with the purchase of an off – lease system. The system we purchased has the performance and storage capacity we need, while saving us well over 50% compared to buying new.’
‘Whether it’s a complete system, add on storage, or support for legacy systems, Zerowait offers a real alternative to the expensive OEM solution. We have the expertise and the inventory to help NetApp users get the maximum ROI out of their investment,’ added Rob Robinson, Vice President of Sales for Zerowait.
Mike Linett, President of Zerowait continued: ‘Our new SimplStor product line can save customers even more when implementing Tier 2 storage. With 3 years of SimplSupport and Single Namespace, 1 petabyte of SimplStor costs less than $300,000. Now our clients have even more options as they build out their storage infrastructure, and our engineers can offer more ways to help them meet both their performance and budget requirements.’
Added Mr. Stinson: ‘Zerowait has shown that they are serious about helping us to save on our IT requirements. As we continue to expand we’ll definitely investigate SimplStor as a way to further drive down the cost of ever expanding storage requirements.’
